And while that's now impossible for a couple of reasons (RIP Pandora), there's a good reason the Echo became the go-to music hub of my home. To use hipages - Find a Tradie via Amazon Alexa , owners of an Amazon Echo device are invited to simply enable the hipages "Skill" on their Amazon Alexa app via their phone, from 1 February 2018.

The Echo devices will be localised for Australia, from Alexa sounding like an Aussie or Kiwi, to recognising our various local accents, as well as providing local news bulletins, weather forecasts, sports scores and surf reports.

Amazon Music Unlimited will be available through three monthly plan options; the Echo Plan, offering full access to Amazon Music Unlimited at $4.99/month on a single Echo, Echo Dot or Echo Plus; the Individual Plan at $11.99/month; or the Family Plan, coming soon, which will allow up to six members of a household to share a subscription for just $17.99/month.

Of course it didn't just stop with smart home as they had a large selection of TVs and projectors to show off this year, including their newest Nano Cell Displays (which will also feature LG's ThinQ AI with Google Assistant built-in and Amazon Alexa support).

George Frazis, Chief Executive, Consumer Bank said: "We know our customers want a seamless banking experience that fits with their needs and complements their lifestyles". Listeners will be able to ask the Echo to play music from Amazon Music's most popular and trending artists, with the old, "Alexa, play the "Top Australian Pop" station", or "Alexa, play the "Divas Down Under" playlist" - a selection of notable female artists from Australia and New Zealand (though we truly hate that playlist title).

Voice services, like Amazon's Alexa, let you do many things - from asking questions, checking your calendar, playing music and controlling your compatible smart home devices using your voice.

Michelle Williams 'engaged to secret boyfriend'
Perhaps now Williams has found happiness with Youmans, and we sincerely wish the couple all the best! It's believed this incident is largely why Williams is so guarded about her personal life now.

"As more people adopt innovative voice-activated technologies in an increasingly mobile world, we are excited to be one of the leaders in this space providing secure, easy to use, cutting edge banking services for our customers".

Today, it confirmed that Amazon Music Unlimited would launch in those countries on February 1st with Echoes on sale at select retailers early that month.

"It's still early days for having conversations with your technology, but we're continuing to discover new ways to adapt and integrate that into our daily lives", he says.

"Technologies likes this help us to deliver greater convenience and a richer experience for our customers", amaysim CEO, Julian Ogrin, said. Alexa allows amaysim to engage with our customers in a more natural way when it comes to account information and other useful services.

GET ready to say g'day to Amazon Alexa.
